LIFE IN AUSTRALIA My encounter with God began when I was six years old, my younger sister Lyn was suffering from acute
asthma attacks and she could hardly breathe, my parents could not afford doctors fees, so they cried out to God for help!
I witnessed many times as a young boy my sister’s release in breathing as my family prayed to God. Eventually my sister
received total healing through her own personal faith and prayers. I was baptized in 1957 at the age of nine and attended
a Baptist Church and Boy’s Brigade. I had a form of religion at this time but Jesus was not the Lord of my life. I began
my musical career at the age of fifteen, I studied guitar and music for two years and then began playing in various bands
and doing solo engagements.
THE CALL OF GOD At the age of nineteen I made Jesus the Lord of my life at a Billy Graham Crusade in Sydney
Australia. I experienced an infilling of the Holy Spirit that transformed my life. The love of God flooded my heart and emptied
me of selfishness, I began to witness immediately and testify to grace of God. At this point I felt to leave the entertainment
scene and pursue the call of God on my life. My parents opened up a small dwelling at the rear of their home as an outreach
ministry. Together as a family we witnessed over six hundred conversions to the glory of God. My future wife Kerri was one
of our former conversions and after a two year engagement we married in June 1980. I struggled through the next few years
as both my parents past away in close proximity. After closing the home outreach we formed a family musical group and played
at various churches and functions. We attended Hills Christian Life Center pastored by Brian Houston and we were leaders of
a home cell group. I also attended full time Bible College for two years.In September 1988 we moved north to the state of
Queensland and helped pioneer a new Church with Pastors George and Angie Gebran.
THE FAMILY CHALLENGE In November 1996 I traveled
to the USA and visited the Brownsville Revival, I was hungry for a fresh anointing and new direction in my life. I earnestly
desired His will above all else. After revisiting the USA again in 1998 the Lord confirmed that we were to move to America
for His purposes, with the blessing of our local church we sold everything and moved in February 1999.
LIFE IN THE USA Since being
in America God has established us as a family and ministry, three of our four children have found their future partners and
we have ten grandchildren. I have recorded two new CDs and written a book called The Night Watch since our arrival in
the USA. After supporting our sponsoring church for two years we also pioneered the Rock Outreach and Cave ministry to the
youth of our area.
Shake The City concert events
were also sponsored by our music team, sharing anointed music and the power of the gospel of Christ
Kerri and I have been serving on the music team at Living Faith Church in Niceville,
Florida. We also fulfilled two years of In Christ Bible College.
Kerri and I recently became members of Destiny Worship Center with Pastors Steve and Jackie Vaggalis. We
are very excited to be there serving the church and our community for Christ.
